Finding a good dessert for just the two of us can be a challenge. Most make just too much for two people. And what about single people. When I was single, I had no business baking a whole cake and eating it by myself. Which is one of the reasons I love crisps.
Crisps are wonderful. You can make a small amount or a big amount. I usually use a muffin pan. And you can make it around whatever fruit is in season. This week I made up several different crisps with whatever fruit looked good at the grocery store – blackberry, apple, pear, cherry and peach. If you just want to make single servings, you can use a oven-safe custard cup or even a muffin pan.
I used a muffin pan and did a different fruit in each cup.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place fruit into cups. For pears, apples and peaches, that’s about a half a fruit sliced.
Squeeze lemon juice over fruit. Top each cup with –
1 t. brown sugar
1 T. oatmeal
1/2 T. chopped nuts (I like walnuts or pecans)
1 thin slice of butter
Pinch of cinnamon
